The kidnapped Palestinians were identified as Bilal Eid, Yasser Eid, Imad Omran, Raed az-Zibn, Montaser Eid, Castro Qadous, Bashar Qadous, Bashir Qadous, and Mohammad As‚Äôous. All abducted residents were cuffed, blindfolded and taken to the Huwwara military base, near Nablus.
In related news, four Palestinians were wounded after undercover forces of the Israeli military broke into their home at midnight on Monday in the Qalandia refugee camp, north of occupied East Jerusalem. The residents were pepper-sprayed and suffered concussions and bruises after being kicked and beaten by the soldiers. The injured residents were moved to the Palestine Medical Center, in Ramallah.
Earlier on Monday, soldiers abducted six Palestinians in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and attacked two residents violently beating and kicking them causing several injuries. Soldiers also struck a 10 year old child, identified as Mahran Abu Hayya, and resident Shadi Sidir, 28, at the ash-Shuhada‚Äô Street in Hebron.
